The notice provided for a comment period ending on May 8, 2000. In response to the request from Congressman Hansen, Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Parks and Public Lands, to extend the comment period for 30 days, the National Park Service determined that the comment period should be reopened for this extended period. This reopening of the comment period will allow the National Park Service to consider comments received after May 8, 2000, the date it was initially closed.
